Mooi z art, prima schuim. Chocola, klein beetje rook. Mondgevoel is perfect, dik, super! Smaakt ook erg lekker, sterk, beetje alcoholisch, zoet. Vol van smaak.

22oz bottle shared at the July London Tasting @CBC Islington. Many thanks to Leighton for this one. It pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet and bold with notes of vanilla, toffee, bold white chocolate. Taste is super sweet and lightly boozy with notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, light espresso and sugar. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Overall, massive and sweet

Sevenlee (1762) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Tasting of the 2015 bottle. Pours totally black with a light brown head. Aroma is malt, licorice, prune, coffee, chocolate, and moderate roasty. Taste is high sweet leading to a roasty finish. I was worried Id built it up too much in my head but it totally lived up to expectations! Brilliant.

biirusaikou (2585) - - JUN 22, 2016
Sampled at Mechazillas epic insanity tasting session. 2014 vintage. Obviously had very high expectations as a 3F fan. Rich syrupy body, lots of chocolate, vanilla, sweet coffee, unwelcome notes of soy sauce with a fishy edge, lingering sweet finish. Very happy for the tick but quite unimpressed, more thick of a sweet malt liquor than a beer...

copestx (115) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2016
2014 Bottle with Herr Angstmann. Pours motor oil black with a quickly receding beige head leaving it to look like a cola. Aroma is up front molasses, brown sugar, and coffee. Taste follows accordingly with loads of molasses and coffee, with candied cherries, dark chocolate and toffee also making an appearance. Mouthfeel is wonderful. Super sweet but in a good way (for me). Had back-to-back with a Midnight Sun Bezerker. I prefer the Dark Lord but it was too sweet for Angstmann, with the tobacco-ish taste/texture of Bezerker providing a great counterpoint on two exceptional imperial stouts.
